she takes more money from lobbyists and special interests than any candidate, including john mccain, that shows that she doesn't have a sense that we've got to change our business is done in washington. >> ultimately, what i'd like to see is a system of public financing of campaigns and i'm a co-sponsor of the proposal that's in the senate right now. that's what we have to fight for. >> that was candidate obama during the 2010 campaign. the president railed against super pacs, then made an end justifies the means argument in 2012. look, the obama folks can rationalize this all they want. yes, they'll disclose donors and they'll be accepting small donor money but this is the campaign finance world we live in after citizens united. but offering this kind of access to big donors was precisely what bovm w obama was campaigning against in 2007 and 2008. every political strategist involved in the campaign told us on this show, both sides of the aisle, they all believe the campaign finance system is a mess, yet we continue to see a perpetuation of the so-called flawed system like what we s
senate republicans, too, including from the likes of john mccain, who don't want to see that much power go to the president. they're circulating an alternative plan that would cut from federal employee retirement benefits, food stamps and other measures in order to get to that $85 billion in cuts. there is no unanimity among senate republicans but as we know as we're seeing right now none of this is going to pass anyway this week. we'll probably head into the sequester and then when it comes time to negotiate, the continuing resolution, and avert a government shutdown on march 27th. >> one of the things we've seen over the last couple weeks, karen, is increasing nervousness by governors all around the country. new jersey's chris christie took aim at washington during his budget address yesterday. i want to play a little clip of that. >> their failure to take on the nation's budget challenges and address the unsustainability of the nation's long-term liabilities is nothing short of inexcusable. it's pastime for washington to get its act together. that will take two things. bipartisanship
for more than 700,000 civilian workers john mccain called unconscionable, demanding mr. obama lead. >> the president should be calling us over somewhere, camp david, the white house, somewhere and us sitting down and trying to avert these cuts. >> reporter: but even within the republican party, many are questioning how bad the cuts will be, accusing you the president of exaggerating the consequences. >> to not cut 2.5% out of the total budget over a year when it's twice the size it was ten years ago, give me a break. >> reporter: still, at this ship yard in norfolk, virginia, 1600 letters warning of possible pink slips are already in the mail, while workers wait for washington to act. >> guys really need to put their heads together and figure something out. >> you know, they take this away, a lot of people are going to be hurt. >> reporter: a looming crisis underxbird virginia's republican governor. >> sequester was put in place to be a hammer, not a policy. now here we are a week away. find another way to do it and get it done now. >> reporter: tonight, many of the nation's govern
for john mccain and mitt romney. there's no conservative movement left. i want to say that i am officially done and my two brothers are with their families with republicans. i guess i call myself a man without a party. marco rubio will give the response in spanish and english. this is just -- it started with karl rove, the architect, that little nerd -- if i see him one more time on tv -- is the architect of the destruction of the gop. he gave us obama. the idea of reaching out and becoming democrats. what democrats aren't are people who believe in a group identity and hyphenated americanism. we conservatives believe in assimilation. that's why he's not going to give a response in german or italian. we will hear all the lofty platitudes and trite things from obama about a nation of immigrants. it was a somewhat perverse people being melted down by the fires of assimilation and being made similar -- it was a people meltedrdiverse down by the fires of assimilation. nobody would know marco rubio. he looks like the beaver. i will not follow him because he is a trendy minority. having to reach
. >> brian: tomorrow, geraldo rivera will be here. john mccain, we'll find out who is cooler. >> gretchen: see you tomorrow. bill: it is a day of history truly. in less than two hours pope benedict xvi departs the vatican as pope for the last time, a remarkable event that has not happened in some 600 years. long before cable. good morning, everybody we'll watch this together. i'm bill hemmer, welcome to "america's newsroom." lovely color. martha: lovely scene there in rome. it is incredible to watch. good morning, everybody. i'm martha. the pope is expected to depart the papal residence today. he will get on a helicopter. that will happen 11:00 our time. you will see it here on "america's newsroom". bill: the pontiff holding a final audience with the cardinals, the church leaders that will choose his successor from among their own ranks. his holiness sharing a brief, private moment with each one of the cardinals. he will stand behind their choice as he prays for them and the next pope in the coming days. >> translator: among you in the college of cardinals, there is the future pope to who
:30. >> bill: if they call a filibuster and john mccain said he would not support a filibuster, it looks like there would be 60 votes to stop the filibuster. >> that's right. >> bill: can you stop -- do you know, can you stop a hold? if inhoff puts a hold on, that's not a filibuster. that's a different animal, right? >> it's a delay. it's a delay tactic. so i think it merely pushes it off into the future. >> bill: but my understanding one senator can put a hold on somebody's nomination and until that senator agrees to lift it, there's nothing the other senators can do. is that correct? >> we saw that a lot with coburn putting a hold on everything, on legislation, on spending legislation. the pressure here will be fairly remarkable. >> bill: to go along without a secretary of defense. >> i think pressure from the pentagon, military leaders the public not having a guy in charge of the pentagon. it's not going to be sustainable for them. >> bill: the center for american progress has a lot of ties to the white house. so you're going to be live blogging tonight. what does that mean? >> he's going
they were very clean, you know. >> john mccain is not the left. john mccain had real problems with this. >> john mccain is another issue altogether on the subject. i'm not going to go there. i'm just saying, i agree with your point. we haven't heard the other side of this also, chris, which is there's some abu ghraib in "zero dark thirty." and i think coming -- both ways, this is a movie that wasn't going to win it at the end because of the backlash. >> yeah. i think -- i think the academy awards you were saying is really our second great mood ring, like our presidential elections. they really tell us so much about ourselves. they focus on race in the two big movies. "django" and "lincoln." all about slavery. the first time i've ever seen a plantation since "gone with the wind." this was realistic. i thought seth macfarlane brought back the old days of song and dance. and i know i'm old-time on this, but i thought bob hope and johnny carson were fabulous. i know everybody likes billy crystal. he brought back show biz. he really tried. there were over-the-top jokes about getting into lin
john mccain. gabby giffords' political action group, the group she formed with her husband, astronaut mark kelly asks americans for responsible solutions. americans for responsible solutions sut this ad, which is going to be running after the state of the union apparently on fox and msnbc and on cnn. >> we have a problem. where we shop, where we pray, where our children go to school. but there are solutions we can agree on. even gunowners like us. take it from me. congress must act. let's get this done. >> in addition to running after the state of the union tomorrow night on cable networks, that ad is scheduled to air on local broadcast tv in washington, d.c. according to the group that produced the ad, they're also planning on running this in local media markets, reaching the constituents of all four top congressional leaders from both houses and both parties. so that's mitch mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi and john boehner. in response i think to the number of democrats and the first lady bringing victims of gun violence with them as guests to the state of the union this year, t
taylor project, bob franken and boris epstein, republican strategist who worked on john mccain's presidential campaign. good to see all of you. >> hello. >> how are you, craig? >> goldie, we'll start with you. ladies first. nate silva, of course, of the "new york times," he is picking "argo" writing in "the times" and "zero dark thirty" may have won slightly more critical acclaim but the critics do not vote for the oscars and the insiders have, and there's been absolute consensus among insiders. it would an enormous upset if it were to lose. i know you're not an insider, but if you had to pick which politically themed movie out of these three, "lincoln," "argo" and "zero dark thirty," which of these three do you pick? >> i almost always go with nate silva. difficult to go against 538 in any situation but this time i go with "lincoln." >> really, daniel day-lewis did a masterful job. >> how about you, boris? what do you think? >> i've been getting crushed by nate for a long time dating back to the election. also republicans have been having a tough time going against him, but i'
, once in the stands for george w. bush. on the subject of dreams and nightmares, guess which one john mccain was having in 2007? a big yawn from harry reid in 2010. and for vice president biden, perhaps a moment of meditation in 2011. mr. biden's hands have their very own chapter in the state of the union history book. so much sitting and standing and clapping, easy to see why he might have a timing issue. >> less than 1%. >> reporter: -- there is the air boxing fist pump -- >> that dream is why the working class kid from scranton can sit behind me. >> reporter: and, of course, the palms to the sky shrug. >> nobody messes with joe. am i right? >> reporter: we have the constitution to thanks for this annual address. and even if the state of the union is animated, sleepy, or dreamy, according to the president -- >> the state of our union will always be strong. >> john berman, this is why i love you. let me just say this, shouldn't everyone in that sacred room just always sort of assume you can be on camera at any moment in time, right? on your best behavior. >> absolutely. drink 12 cups of cof
-minute negotiations and each says the other is playing politics. the pentagon would take a major hit. senator john mccain says today that the impact on the military would be unconscionable and could mean longer tours of duty for troops in afghanistan. the nation's governors, democrat and republican, anticipate possible economic effects in their states. >> all of this is a concern for our respective states, if they do nothing or what the alternatives could be. are starting to comeifficult out of it and it is getting better and unfortunately the sequester could put us right back where we were. >> the sequester takes effect march 1 unless congress takes action to stop it so far, no action. >> no action? no one talking to each other? what a surprise. >>heather: think the budget battles in washington, dc will not hit you in the government warning now that if sequestration occurs it could mean a furlough of meat inspection workers which could cause trouble at the meat market. >> politics could get in the way of being able to eat the foods we like to eat. >> if this happens, the prices could go up a little bit
of the momentum, outstretched hands from republican senators from john mccain and lindsey graham, tough critics of president obama's foreign policy. >> let's get this done. send me the bill in the next couple of months and i'll sign it right away. >> reporter: many lawmakers wore green ribbons in solidarity of the newtown, connecticut. in his close president obama asked congress do what they haven't done in nearly two decades. >> if you want to vote no, that's your choice, but these propoetals deserve a vote. >> reporter: with michelle obama the parents of hadiya pendleton, gunned down after she performed at president obama's inauguration. >> hadiya's parents are here along with americanses who families were torn down by gun violence, they deserve a vote. >> reporter: but asking for a vote is not the same thing as encouraging congress to pass a new law. the president did that on immigration control. charlie and norah? >> major garrett, thanks. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> deserves a vote. >> first of all, our heart is broken for those people. all of us would want to prevent that f
mind this was all about the campaign. the campaign is over. john mccain and lindsey graham and senators and house -- >> i don't even think what she said is legitimate according to the president. illegitimate even to ask a question. be quiet. >> going to ask a question about this. because we're getting more information out of kaiser health news. put together a little research as to how much money we are spending on medicare and medicaid for illegal immigrants as they enter the emergency room. this is happening in states with large population of illegal immigrants such as florida, north carolina, california and others. where they go to emergency rooms, they are pregnant and the emergency room hand delsz their pregnancy and the delivery to the tune of $2 billion a year that we're spending on these pregnancies and these deliveries. >> that medicaid is spending and illegals aren't eligible for medicaid but they are getting anyway. the reason is that doctors and nurses just like teachers and pals shouldn't be charged with enforcing immigration law. federal government's job not doing it illega
in colorado and moved here because i really liked john mccain when he was anti-bush. >> you moved to arizona because you liked one of their senator? >> yeah when mccain used to go head-to-head against bush's policies -- >> that's really a reason to pick up and move interstate. >> caller: well, i lost my job -- >> okay. [overlapping speakers] >> caller: he opened up a shop down in bull head and -- [overlapping speakers] >> caller: and then when i got here he died. his wife sold the business and i have been kind of stranded ever since. i bought a house that i can't sell -- >> stephanie: well you'll always have bull head.

an important vote of confidence when john mccain said he was leaning towards confirmation. >>> that carnival cruise ship that's stranded in the gulf of mexico is being pulled to mobile, alabama instead of mexico. it's been dead in the water since sunday when a fire knocked out its engines. it's scheduled to arrive in the u.s. on thursday. there are more than 4,200 people on that ship. passengers and loved ones say it's not a good scene on board. >> there's no lights. no water. we can't flush. some people were able to shower. no one was injured. most of us are camping out on the top deck. >> they're all crying and hysterical. they want to go home. >> abc news learned this is the third trip in which the "triumph" has suffered propulsion problems. the ship's next two voyages have been canceled and passengers will receive a full refund. >> interesting note here. apparently it's been towed to alabama to save the company millions and millions of dollars. and at this point, it's like they just don't care about the poor vacationers. they are offering them all reimbursement, though, and money if you
party lines. senator john mccain blasted hagel's performance before the committee. >> the performance before this committee was the worst that i've seen of any nominee for office. he refused to answer a simple straightforward question. as to whether the surge was a success or not and whether he supported it or not. >> in london, there is a new phone-hacking scandal at a tabloid already brought down by hacking. we're talking about rupert murdoch's old newspaper "news of the world." six former staffers have now been arrested, accused of listening to people's private voice mails. the victims have not been identified in this case. now, police say the incidents happened somewhere between 2005, 2006, that is around the same time "news of the world" was implicated in a much bigger hacking scandal involving crime victims, celebrities, even the royal family. actor matt damon is on strike, not from hollywood, but from the bathroom. >> until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, i will not go to the bathroom. yeah? >> what? >> i'm not going to go to the bathroom. >> whoa. >> yeah,
